Pakistan thrash West Indies in first ODI

PAK-V-WI2Cricket: West Indies Captain Dwayne Bravo said his side was once again let down by poor batting and failed also to capitalize on a 4-wicket spell by young fast-bowler, Jason Holder.

Holder took 4 wickets to leave the Pakistanis tottering on 47/5 less than halfway through their 50 overs, but a dropped chance from Shaid Afridi when he was 0n 20 made Holders fantastic display go in vain. Afridi ended up making 76 and later came back to take 7 wickets in an inept West Indian batting display to skittle them out for just 99 runs.

Holder said he is looking to go one better in the next match but he will be looking to give the effort the team demands.

Former Captain Darren Sammy was also sure that the team will be able to pick itself up and rebound from the heavy defeat.

The West Indies lost by 126 runs in one of their worst defeats in a one day international and will be looking to equal the 5-match series tomorrow at the Providence Stadium.

Football: Milo football champs St. George’s Defeated Dolphin Secondary 5-4 on penalty kicks to win the finals of the Georgetown Zone of the Digicel’s Schools Championship. In a thrilling final both teams were deadlocked at one-all, until St. George’s came through on penalty.

Meanwhile Santa Rosa edged out Port Kaituma, also on penalty kicks 9-8 to claim the regional title on Sunday and for the East Bank, Covent Garden defeated Bladen Hall to be crowned Region 4 champions.
